This will be my 4th season shooting them. I shoot the 300's and have been very happy with their performance. They are very durable, and heavy, which is why I like them. Also the smaller diameter means less drag when passing through an animal. I generally don't use the epoxy that comes with them for the inserts, opting instead for standard hot melt glue. I found that with the epoxy, any errant shot, whether target practicing or in the woods, will result in the arrow breaking just above the insert because the epoxy is unweilding. No one plans to miss or shoot into a tree or anything, but when it happens, with the hot melt, there is at least the chance of just pulling the insert out and salvaging the arrow.

Excellent arrows. I have shot prob 15 deer with them and have yet to break or bend one. And my biggest deer was laying on it (Only non pass through ever)

tough, heavy, consistent, easy to work with. They do bend, but it takes a lot to make that happen. If your looking for a heavier straight consistent shaft they are an excellent choice.

They are just GREAT !
I shot them in Africa on different game. Penetration is one of the best you can find.
They fly very accurate.
Lifetime is excelent. Except if you shot them in the trees. Sure, they will bend...
I use them in France. Even on my mountain hunts for Chamois and Mouflon, at long distances. Heavy, but fly like a dream.
I recommend them without a doubt.
Great hunt.

Tried them, moved on. Pretty arrow.

No one has mentioned this passing out the kooklaid but they are aluminum outside. Some arrows draw very quietly and some don't, aluminum doesnt. Kind of the difference between running your fingers down dental floss and running them down a guitar string with the FMJ being like the guitar string.

ACC is the opposite, aluminum inside. Kind of like the dental floss.
